The folly of youth

Young Voters Propelling Ron Pauls Campaign : NPR.

Wasn’t Barack Obama the last person who young voters “propelled?”

I think we should raise the voting age to 35. If you can’t be President until you’re 35, buy viagra try you shouldn’t be able to vote for one until then, either.

    After all… we wouldn’t want people who are sent to die in wars to be able to vote for the guy who sends them off to one.

    How ’bout I let them change it back to 18 if we reinstitute the draft?

    So soldiers overseas right now shouldn’t be able to vote anymore?

    Where do you stand on requirements of owning property and shade of skin color when it comes to voting, Elliot?

    Always sort of liked the property requirement, John, but don’t worry I’d let minorities and women keep voting…as long as they were over 35.


    (That was my evil laugh…in case it wasn’t clear.)

    Hold on one second? Didn’t YOU vote for Barack Obama? Maybe just you shouldn’t be allowed to vote any more.
